Title
(EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR TRIGGERING TRAFFIC LIGHT SENSORS
Abstract
(EN)

Systems and methods can be used for triggering traffic light sensors. A vehicle can detect a condition indicative of a failure of a traffic light to transition (e.g., due to a failure to activate a traffic light sensor) and take action in response. In some examples, the condition can be detected based on the state of the traffic light facing the vehicle and/or the state of one or more traffic lights controlling traffic perpendicular to the vehicle. In some examples, the condition can be detected based on a duration of a state of the traffic lights. In response to detecting the condition, the vehicle can take action. In some examples, the autonomous driving system of the vehicle can automatically adjust the vehicle's position to trigger the sensor. In some examples, the vehicle can notify the driver of the condition. In some examples, the autonomous driving system of the vehicle can reroute the vehicle.
